VGH #61: Man in a Vent Shaft

Sony’s purchase of cloud-gaming company Gaikai has us wondering about the future of shiny plastic discs. Also: THQ’s near-cancellation of The Devil’s Third gets us talking about some potentially good games that never saw the light of day.

In the Hangover, we offer a quick update on our Summer Backlog Project, survive The Walking Dead: Starved for Help and the tap to the beat of Final Fantasy: Theatrhythm.

Lastly, we’ve got your Tweets and comments, a reminder to set your DVR for the new season of Breaking Bad, a celebration of 25 years of Metal Gear, and a fun foodie recommendation.

VGH #60: What a Downer

VGH #60: What a Downer

We’re getting all hot and bothered this week, and not just because it’s 103 degrees outside. The release of Lollipop Chainsaw prompts a decidedly PG-13 conversation about sex, sexuality and video games. NSFW!

Paul and D.J. are working their way through their backlogs and offer quick updates on Psychonauts and Bioshock.

We’ve also got thoughts on the new Mass Effect ending, Andrew Garfield’s pre-Spider-Man work, and the tenuous threads between Dane Cook and Capcom.

VGH #55: Pleasantly Supplied

As anyone who survived Blizzard’s Great Diablo Debacle last week can attest, always-on DRM in single-player games can be a giant pain in the ass. On this week’s show, we’re talking about how some devs are willing to sacrifice player experience in the interest of protecting their products and making a few bucks.

We’ve also got your Viewer Mail, talk of Max Payne 3 and Indie Game: The Movie, and more!

VGH #54: The Incident

The folks at Treyarch are feverishly assembling the next Call of Duty game and promising several changes aimed at roping in new players. Will it be enough to get us on board?

In the Hangover this week: we’ve all spent some time with Starhawk but Paul can’t seem to put down Radiant Historia long enough to talk about it. Also, Randy learns a valuable lesson in “save early and save often”.

Lastly: want a free copy of Minecraft for your Xbox 360? Listen to this week’s show for instructions to get extra entries in our contest!

VGH #51: You’re Really Just Playing Pong

We can’t believe that we’ve made 51 episodes already!

On this week’s show, we discuss a whole slew of other gaming-related things that we simply can’t believe: Call of Duty‘s success, the Wii’s dominance, Mass Effect‘s overlooked accomplishment and the possibility of a single-console gaming future.

In the Hangover segment, we explore our love/hate relationships with Disgaea, Radiant Historia, Kinect, Witcher, and Bit.Trip Saga.

Finally, we wrap up with a Last Call that somehow references Kid Icarus, Megan Fox, and collectable fine art pieces.
